Younar men of \var-"«brothers, sonsV and best

mons — became young men of pe^e. They eagerly 
exchanged uniforms for civilian clothe\, gold braid 
for gold discharge buttons. Simmons^Shappily

Male veterans invaded the college causing a?^B| 
fleeting furor. Newspapers cartooned "Simmons 
Goes Co-ed." Former WACS and WAVES ex- 
changed knapsacks for textbooks and entered Sim- 
mons with less fanfare but just as much- purpose. 
Simmons alumnae who had joined the armed 
forces began to resume their places in civilian life. 

Many faculty members returned to classrooms 
from war and government service. In classes 
knitting needles slackened or ceased clicking 
Bundles for Britain and sweaters for soldiers. 

Simmons looked to its building projects. Students 
wondered how long it would be before other halls 
like Evans would rise on campus. College architects 
were also planning a new library, a science build- 
ing, and a social unit. The corridors and classrooms 
of the main building were painted a soft shade of 
green, first step in post-war planning. 

The postman became less popular when vet- 
erans started delivering their "letters" in person. 
Diamonds sparkled on many a left hand. 

The effects of victory reached every sea and 
shore, every river and bank, even "Muddy River" 
and the Simmons community which borders it.

Simmons College 

The traditions of Simmons commuters are a 
gulp of coffee in the morning, a sprint for the 
train, and a cordial enmity toward the "El." 
Heaven help those with first hour classes to squeeze 
into Jamaica-Arborway cars! 

In two semesters most commuters travel the 
distance between Boston and Bolivia. They have 
no "song of the open road" because billboards, 
which add the ABC's of Chesterfields to college 
curricula, cut the landscape from view. 

While commuters are half-way to class, most 
dorm students are still sound asleep. To be sure, 
some have just "hit the hay" after an all night bull 
session. A few of these succumb and cut first hour 
classes, but more energetic roommates sleepily 
crawl from under cover. 

Footsteps keep pace with the ticking clock as 
commuters and dorm students hasten toward the 
brownstone building numbered 300. Together at 
lectures, in labs, seeking Bachelors of Science, they 
ponder Richardson's Pamela, Adam Smith, or the 
quantum theory. 

"Save us seats!" is the noontime battle-cry of 
students storming campus refectory and college 
cafeteria. Commuters not blessed with sandwiches 
from home run the lunchroom obstacle course. 




'Now the girls at Salerno 



Any visitor to Simmons would not be able to 
tell commuter and dorm student apart. They 
dress alike, in bright sweaters, plaid skirts, bulky 
socks, and well-worn loafers. They think alike, 
griping over an advertising course, defending 
current views. They act alike, ordering cokes, 
dancing at the Copley-Plaza. They are alike, 
blending their interests in Simmons College life.

The S.R.O. sign hangs continually outside 
052A, hazy haunt for butt fiends and bridge ad- 
dicts.' In the din of this den, life never seems such a 

struggle. 

The Lounge, too, is a favorite harbor of those 
with leisure moments. Here, between bites of a 
brownie from Showcase, students discuss men, 
movies, money, and momentous problems of the 
day. There is always a buzzing throng around 
Hall Table, where students cast ballots, buy prom 
solicit subscriptions, and enjoy the latest 

passes without giving the note-

board a quick glance. Often there's a note from a 
pal, once in a while, a card requesting her presence 
at the Dean's Office "at the earliest opportunity." 

Notices from President Beatley's office appear 
in the glass case beside the noteboard. Students 
were overjoyed early in the year when the an- 
nouncement of a return to the peacetime schedule 
of holidays appeared here. 

Occasionally, a triumphant shout echoes down 
the corridor. A few students dance in momentary 
dementia that can easily be explained. "Mr. 
Tryon will not meet his classes today," reads the 
official noteboard. Hurrah for him!

On warm spring and fall evenings, students gathered round the 
Seniors on the Colonnade steps for step singing. Sister classes 
serenaded each other with old songs and clever originals. 

Inter-class rivalry provided the inspiration for Competitives. 
Some of the girls in greasepaint were so convincing that many sug- 
gested that Simmons open a School of the Drama. 

Sophisticated Sals proudly displayed their brand new civilians at 
MIC Dance in November. The rain that evening could not dampen 
the gaiety prevailing at Simmons first post-war formal.

lend color to Simmons traditions 

Medieval costumes and a flaming boar's head gave a festive air 
to Olde English Dinner. The antics of the jesters and the feat of 
eating with a knife added to the comic dignity of the evening. At 
Christmas Pageant the story of Bethlehem was solemnly presented. 
Then came mid-year exams, a tradition at all colleges. 

Simmons girls pulled on long black gloves to attend "Simmons 
Night" at Pops. Faculty and students enthusiastically responded to 
this annual "invasion" of Symphony Hall. All-College Weekend, ^

Profs and students 





fJT 






A tradition being furthered at Simmons is close faculty-student 
relations. A faculty advisor helped each Freshman through her first 
year at college. He encouraged her to investigate new fields, cau- 
tioned her against pitfalls, and shepherded her through the receiving 
line at Freshmen Reception. 

Faculty-student relations at school were usually dignified, but not 
on Field Day. At the baseball game profs who displayed mental 
agility in the classroom were shy about chasing fly balls and snaring 
hot grounders. Cheers and jeers made the backyard seem like 
Ebbets Field that day. 

Profs, although not big leaguers on the diamond, were adept with 
ping-pong paddles. Witness the enthusiasm with which they took 
part in the annual faculty-student tournaments. This year Mr. 
Klein, Mr. Vaughn, Mr. Ifft, and Mr. Sypher swung mean paddles 
for the faculty team. 

As soon as Mr. Rankin's dome became sunburned, it was warm 
enough for outdoor classes. Despite droning planes and bees, profs 
and students welcomed the fresh air after being confined by four 
walls all winter.

Students and faculty exchanged opinions on world as well as col- 
lege affairs in Mews. Often opinions clashed. Nearly as often, con- 
flicting ideas were reconciled. 

A strong spirit of co-operation has steadily grown within the last 
few years between students and faculty at Simmons. Barriers which 
usually exist at colleges have been broken. The faculty participates 
in college affairs, acting as patrons at dances and receptions, attend- 
ing Stu-G sponsored student-faculty teas, taking part in traditional 
events with good humor. In their relations with each other, students 
and faculty are more and more "in there pitching."

to shape the future 

June and Senior Week at Simmons College 
brought to black-garbed Seniors the realization 
that their college life was almost over. Families 
and friends of the graduates, attracted to the 
campus by the bright pageant of Class Day, were 
guests at Garden Party. Then across the lawn 
came the notes of the "Marching Song." The long 
line of Seniors, bordered by white -clad Juniors 
bearing ropes of daisies, advanced to the steps of 
the Colonnade. Traditionally, the Seniors planted 
ivy in honor of their class and yielded their places 
on the Colonnade steps to the Juniors. That evening 
caps and gowns were laid aside in favor of formals 
at the last class dance. 

The Reverend Gardiner M. Day, Rector of 
Christ Church, Cambridge conducted the Bac- 
calaureate service. Students received the final good 



wishes of the faculty at the President's Reception. 

Monday, June 10, 1946 was Commencement 
Day. Mrs. Vera Micheles Dean delivered the Com- 
mencement address. Dean Mesick read the long 
list of graduates. President Beatley awarded 
diplomas to the girls who became proud possessors 
of Bachelor of Science degrees. With the singing 
of the "College Hymn" graduation was over. 

That afternoon at Senior Luncheon, in keeping 
with the Simmons rose and ring tradition, each 
engaged Senior circled the table and received a 
rose. Soon afterwards, the refectory echoed with 
the last good-byes.

The>Simmons Corporation, organized in 1899, 
5 indeed fulfilled the wish of John Simmons 
whose will stated that Simmons College should give 
instruction in art, science, and industry, best cal- 
culated to allow young women to acquire in- 
dependent livelihoods. 

The Corporation has frequently changed the 
Simmons program so that, in trend with modern 
education, it will continue to be a wise combination 
of technology and liberal arts. Members of the 
Corporation are: Henry Lefavour, Ph.D., LL.D.; 
John Washburn Bartol, A.B., M.D., Emeritus; 
Mary Eleanor Williams, Emerita; Henry Edmund 
Bothfeld; Carl Dreyfus, A.B.; William Emerson, 
A.B., Art.D.; John Stanley Ames, A.B., M.F.; 
William Brooks Baker, A.B., LL.B.; Bancroft

The Administration 



President Bancroft Beatley 



President Bancroft Beatley co-ordinates the 
Corporation, Administration, and student body 
into a functional whole. He has led Simmons suc- 
cessfully in the world of today. Mr. Beatley is 
noted for his tact, his hospitality, and carefully 
formulated policies. Keenly interested in all student 
activities, Mr. Beatley often lays aside his natural 
dignity to play keystone sack at Field Day baseball 
games. 

In February Professor J. Garton Needham was 
appointed to the newly created post of Vice- 
President. Sandy-haired Mr. Needham, who taught 
psychology at Simmons before entering the Army 
in 1942, will assist Mr. Beatley in an administra- 
tive capacity and will continue to teach psychology. 

Dean Jane Louise Mesick takes a genuine inter- 
est in the welfare of her students. She steadfastly 
guides their progress through four college years. 
No gripe is too trivial, no problem too perplexing 
for her ears. Her sprightly conversation in the 
cafeteria line or her cheerful corridor greeting have 
boosted many a student's ego.

James Mead Hyatt, Professor of Physics, has 
been Dean of the Graduate Division since 1940. 
A profound scholar, Mr. Hyatt has a genius for 
notable lectures which reduce scientific enigmas 
to an understandable level. 

"Checks should be made payable to Simmons 
College, and if sent by mail, should be addressed 
to the Comptroller." Such information is at the 
bottom of the memorandum of charges which 
greets every Simmons student twice a year. 

College term bills are but one of the respon- 
sibilities of Mr. Richmond K. Bachelder, Treas- 
urer and Comptroller. From his glass-enclosed 
office, he directs the upkeep of college buildings 
and properties. All expenses contracted by the 
college are his concern. With his assistant, Mrs. 
Ethel M. Bere, and his staff, he tackles the problems 
of college finance. The Comptroller's office is kept 
busy signing commuters' special travel rate blanks 
and cashing dorm students' allowance checks.

The library, seventy-eight steps skyward, is the 
closest to the moon many Simmons students may 
ever come. In contrast to the supposedly unin- 
habited moon, Libraries A and B are constantly 
occupied. Even Freshmen, whose domain is Library 
C on the ground floor, occasionally climb to the 
fourth. 

The library is indispensable to college education. 
Students think Miss Alice Hopkins, Director 
the Library also indispensable. She is as 
assist students as they are to be helped 
Hopkins estimates that the Simmons lit 
quires two thousand books a year, rang.ng 
technical works to the latest fiction. Every 
is made to keep Simmons students well t 
through books. 

The first definite contact prospective 
have with Simmons is through the Office of Ad- 
mission and Guidance. High school seniors are 
much impressed by Miss Doris M. Sutherland 
who interviews all candidates for admission. 
Those accepted learn the problems and functions 
of the college at the weekly meetings of College 
Opportunities arranged by Miss Sutherland and her 
assistant, Miss Margery Wry. 




Miss Ruth Danielson, Director of Residence on 
the main campus, supervises the welfare of several 
hundred students. She takes an active role in many 
college functions and is well known to commuters 
as well as to dorm students. Mrs. Frank Cooper, 
Director of Residence on Freshman campus, 
calms the qualms of Simmons' newest students. 
Miss Anna Hanson, Director of Placement, 
s Simmons graduates find positions in the 
ness. world. Miss Janet Smith assists under- 
rates in finding part-time work. The central

ofbourow, when "acid indigestion causes 
distress]' or "minor disorders irritate." Dr. Loof- 
bourow attacks germs persistently with prescrip- 
tions and pills for patients. Head colds and head- 
aches are the most common complaints. Miss 
Mary Hill, in 052, takes blood tests and makes 
analyses to diagnose complicated symptoms. 
Health, like certain courses, is a prerequisite at 
Simmons.

A letter to alumnae 





Freshmen, who scarcely believe they will even- 
tually be alumnae of Simmons College, soon 
recognize Miss Marjorie Shea, whose office is 
on the corridor to Library C. As executive secretary 
of the Alumnae Association, Miss Shea records all 
information available about Simmons graduates. 
She is also editor of the Simmons Review, the alumnae 
publication. 

Registration weeks at Simmons are hectic for 
Mrs. Margaret Gonyea, Registrar. Students make 
final decisions on courses from the attractive cat- 
alogue which originates in the Registrar's Office. 
Then under Mrs. Gonyea's guidance, they sign up 
for another semester. 

Like the most popular movie idol, Simmons 
students have a publicity agent. Mrs. Pearl Young, 
who conducts the Office of Public Relations, sends 
newsworthy items about Simmons girls to home- 
town papers. Mrs. Young keeps the press well 
informed of social and educational activities at 
Simmons. She also edits the Simmons College 
News Bulletin.

"Meet me at Info" might well be the battle-cry 
of the Simmons brigade. Info is vital. So is Miss 
Marie La Porte who supplies it. Miss La Porte is 
one of Simmons' masterminds. She has ready 
answers for mailmen, delivery boys, sailors, vet- 
erans, students, even profs. How many questions 
does she answer each day? It's a secret. 

Noses point the way to the college cafeteria as 
delicious odors permeate near-by locker rooms. 
Although the food shortage has extended to the 
post-war period, the cafeteria, under the direction 
of Miss Mary Davidson, is noted for the tasty, 
inexpensive food it serves. 

Fugitives from an Ec or Chem class may often 
be found moseying around the Bookstore. Girls 
love to explore the shelves of nicknacks, stationery, 
and Mexican pottery. Into the store cash register 
go many carefully saved dimes and dollars. The 
most popular Bookstore demand is, "Five threes, 
please." 





Mrs. Helen G. Adams 
Acting Director of the Business School 

• Ready, on your mark 



Future business 

Some girls in the Business School claim they 
have "typewriter jerk." They spend much of their 
time finding the way out of a maze of Accounting 
papers. They bemoan their crowded schedule and 
the sessions in the machines room. However, they 
all know these courses help them become letter 
perfect, down to the last a, s, d,f, g. 

The Business School combines professional and 
vocational subjects with academic cultural courses. 
Shorthand, Typewriting, Business Law, and Per- 
sonnel go hand in hand with history, psychology, 
economics, and foreign languages. 

A program in inter-American relations provides 
special training for girls who wish to work in 
consular offices or in firms doing business with 
South America. Courses in this program stress the 
study of the Spanish language and South American 
history. 

Because of their background, Business School 
girls prove to be indispensable "Girl Fridays" 
to their employers and rise to executive positions. 
The February Simmons College Bulletin cites "the 
plan of having each student become so thoroughly 
conversant with some special business field that her

knowledge and ability will take her over the 
threshold to the position beyond — if she wishes it." 

Graduates of the Business School have worked 
in various government agencies. Many are teachers 
of commercial subjects in high schools and colleges. 
Others have preferred to work in the fields of ad- 
vertising, real estate, law, and personnel. 

The Scribunal Club promotes fun and friendship 
between the students and faculty of the Business 
School. Members of the club turn out in numbers, 
for the meetings always promise to be fun. 

Dressed as a lamp with a lampshade on her 
head, Mabel Livingstone climaxed the pantomime, 
"And the Lamp Went Out," presented at the 
October meeting. In November Mr. Samuel J. 
Lukens, Director of the Business School until the 
second semester, spoke on the "Unionization of the 
White Collar Worker." Dean Mesick and Mrs. 
Lukens poured tea at the Mother-Daughter meet- 
ing in January. Mrs. Jessie M. Stuart spoke on 
"Clothes and Their Selection." 

Officers of Scribunal were: President, Stella 
McDonough; Vice-President, Alice Driscoll; Sec- 
retary, Elsie Stone; Treasurer, Doris Drescher.

Home Economics students follow in preparing 
for their chosen field. Home Ecers blend their 
courses of study, rise to a high temperature at 
exam time, and mature under their school curricu- 
lum. When their student days are over, they 
emerge from the Simmons College "melting pot" 
well equipped to pursue their specialties. 

The program of every Home Economics student, 
regardless of professional objective, includes basic 
courses in Foods and Nutrition, Design and 
Clothing, Home Management, and Child Devel- 
opment. 

Crisp white uniforms and hair nets are the 
badges of Home Economics students. 

Students spend eight weeks of Junior year in 
the Home Management House on campus. There 
the "ladies of the house" take turns at every chore 
from planning menus to scrubbing the pantry 
ceiling.

Probably every girl at the College who has 
breathed the delicious odors wafting from the 
Home Ec labs has considered changing to the 
Home Economics School. Clothing majors who 
resemble Vogue models are also strong persuaders. 

Opportunities for Home Economics graduates 
interested in foods and nutrition include the fields 
of dietetics, institutional management, public 
health, nutrition, and research. Clothing and 
textile majors may become textile technicians and 
work in store laboratories, manufacturing plants, 
or research agencies. Students with artistic and 
creative ability may choose the fields of costume 
design or interior decoration. 

During the war many graduates served as Army 
dietitians all over the world. Some students went 
into Army hospitals for training in public health 
nutrition. Textile majors held positions testing new 
synthetic fabrics. 

The famous delicacies at the Home Economics 
Club meetings are truly "food for thought." This 
year officers were: President, Lois Burr; Vice- 
President, Miriam Colvin; Secretary, Frances Hani- 
fan; Treasurer, Frances Congdon.

An aura of hydrogen sulfide often surrounds 
Science School majors who can be distinguished 
even after they shed the tents or "lab" coats they 
wear. They are set apart by the language they 
speak. Every trade and profession has its own 
gibberish, but the phrases Science School girls 
turn are the most unintelligible. They talk about 
qual, quant, and calc, to say nothing of dielectric 
constants, spiegeleisens, and hexametaphosphates. 

The Science School is divided into three fields 
of specialization: Physics and Mathematics, Biol- 
ogy, and Chemistry. The biology major knows, 
"There is more than one way to skin a cat." The 
chemist quickly learns that certain solutions 
should never be mixed or poof! Simmons would be 
blown off the Fenway. Even figures in the multi- 
millions do not floor the math major. Members of 
the school delve deeply into such courses as An- 
atomy, Microbiology, Physiology, Organic Chem- 
istry, and Optics, Electricity, and Atomic Physics. 
These subjects prepare students to work in hospital 
or research laboratories, to tackle medical or radar 
problems, or to take positions as chemical or in- 
dustrial engineers.

The war has opened new vistas to women scien-

radio-activity.

Timm, Director of the Science School, once said 
with a resigned shake of his head, "If the girls 
didn*t insist on getting married, they could look 
forward to a glorious future in industrial labora- 
tories." 

The official social organ of the school is the Ellen 
Richards Club. Refreshments served in beakers, 
mortars, and test tubes often highlight meetings. 
At the final meeting of the year members had a 
barbecue in the back yard. Josephine Salvo was 
President of the club; Evelyn Drake, Secretary- 
Treasurer; Phyllis Levchuk, Publicity Chairman.

Move it over there 




Despite the addresses listed in the student 
register, most Seniors in the School of Library 
Science live in Room 318. In that professional 
abode Seniors sit behind individual desks and 
handle practical library problems with all the poise 
of professional librarians. 

When students do stray from 318, they beat a 
path to Library A to do assigned work in Descrip- 
tive Cataloguing or Library Science 7, a reference 
course. 

The Library School student spends her first 
three college years acquiring a broad academic 
background. In the fourth year she receives her 
technical training. The Dewey Decimal System 
and the Cutter Tables become her guides. 

Professional librarians are in great demand in 
public and college libraries, business firms, news- 
papers, magazines, insurance and advertising com- 
panies, research laboratories, airway systems, and 
government agencies. The War Department re- 
cently asked for Simmons Library School graduates 
to work in the Far East establishing libraries.

During the war, sixty Simmons graduates served 
in a civilian capacity as Army and Navy libra- 
rians at posts in the United States and overseas. 
Their work led them into arsenal and camp 
libraries, army medical colleges, and overseas 
clubmobiles. 

War contributions have worked both ways for 
the Library School. Simmons' first male veterans 
entered that school. The ex-servicemen caused 
a mild sensation at first. After mutual adjustments 
were made, however, they fitted into the program 
even though they did not wear bobby socks and 
pleated skirts. 

The Dewey Decimal System extends to the 
name of the Library School club, 020, which is 
the classification number for "library economy." 

Movies and two dinner parties were among the 
highlights of this year's program. Officers were: 
President, Olive Bridge; Vice-President, Catherine 
McCree; Secretary, Eleanor Fletcher; Treasurer, 
Adelaide DelFrate; Social Activities Chairman; 
Muriel Rodman.

Acting Director of the Prince School of Retailing 



Prince girls enjoy 

The phrase "She's a Prince girl" is perplexing 
to those unfamiliar with the Simmons vocabulary. 
"Who are Prince girls?" they inquire. Prince girls 
are students in the Prince School of Retailing. 

The School of Retailing was established in 1905 
by Lucinda Wyman Prince as a department of the 
Women's Educational and Industrial Unit of 
Boston. In 1922 the Prince School of Store Educa- 
tion became one of the professional schools of 
Simmons College. The school continued to be 
identified under that title until 1942 when the 
present name was adopted. 

This year the Prince School moved from its 
cramped quarters in the shadow of the State 
House to 49 Commonwealth Avenue, next to the 
School of Social Work. The new location, a spa- 
cious brownstone building, was remodeled to meet 
the needs of the school. 

Students "ohed" and "ahed" for many days 
after first attending classes in the new building. 
The many fireplaces, the library, the director's 
office, the kitchenette, and the smoking room, all 
attractively decorated, were a far cry from the old 
school on Allston Street. 



Only one to a customer? 



Smiling along together 




a fashionable career 

The Prince School of Retailing offers a one-year 
program for college graduates and a four-year 
undergraduate program. The undergraduate pro- 
gram is designed primarily for graduates of junior 
colleges and for students who have completed two 
years of senior college work. Since the range of 
opportunities in retailing is wide, students are 
given a well-rounded background affording broad 
placement possibilities. They prepare for executive 
positions in retail stores or specialize in personnel 
work. Some plan to enter advertising or research. 
Store management and fashion promotion appeal 
to others. 

Periods of store work are interwoven with basic 
school instruction. This field work, for which 
regular salaries are paid, gives students selling and 
non-selling experience. Prince School girls really 
do "work their way through college." 

One of their favorite courses is Fashion, Adver- 
tising, and Display. From them Prince girls gather 
the knowledge which they quote to other students 
who seek advice on current fashions. Judging from 
their stylish garb, Prince girls "practice what they 
preach."

A new home for Prince 





Watch and ward off 

Thousands of nurses during the war years cared 
for patients within the sound of guns. Some were 
graduates of the Simmons College School of 
Nursing. This year's graduate will not have to 
walk the wards of a hospital ship or assist in hut 
operating rooms in Iceland. Duties will lie nearer 
home, in war casualty wards, city hospitals, or 
public health nursing areas. 

Simmons College provides, in its five-year 
nursing program, both a liberal and a professional 
education. With such a combination of studies 
Nursing School graduates are well equipped for 
positions requiring nurses of better than average 
ability and preparation. 

Students spend the first two and a half years at 
college taking courses in Bacteriology, Anatomy, 
Physics, and Chemistry. Summer sessions at the 
"Bent" and the "General,"' during those years, 
give students an opportunity for ward practice 
and the study of Elementary Materia Medica and 
the Principles and Practices of Nursing. 



She's got rhythm 



The diary of a muscle 




is the nurses' creed 



Following college work there are two full years 
of hospital experience. Some are fascinated by the 
operating room technique. Others prefer to special- 
ize in pediatrics, obstetrics, or psychiatric nursing. 
The girls return to Simmons for a final semester in 
their fifth year. Soon after graduation they assume 
coveted places in their profession. 

Junior Nursing students received their long- 
awaited caps on January 6, 1946. At this impressive 
ceremony, Mrs. Pomona Davidson Mitchell gave 
the welcoming address on behalf of the alumnae. 

Anne Strong, the Nursing Club, met this year 
on the second Tuesday of each month. The purpose 
of the club is to promote and maintain acquaint- 
anceship among members at Simmons and at 
hospitals affiliated with the Nursing School. In 
November, Dr. Raoul Nodassi, a graduate of the 
Medical School at Havana University, Cuba, 
spoke to Anne Strong members in Evans Hall. 

Anne Strong officers were: President, Barbara 
Burke; Vice-President, Mary Wood; Secretary, 
Theresa LaLancette; Treasurer, Ruth McCarty.

English School girls 

A word to the wise is usually sufficient, but not 
to learned English School profs. Each semester 
many of them require thousands of words from their 
students. Thus English School girls with pre- 
occupied expressions probably are mentally grop- 
ing for a short story plot or a topic for an English 
"lit" paper. 

Investigation proves these girls practical down 
to the last pica. It's rumored they would never be 
caught without a Manual of Style, a type measure- 
ment gauge, and a Script Shorthand textbook. 

Raymond F. Bosworth, a Navy officer during 
the war, became Director of the School of English 
last June upon the retirement of Dr. Robert M. 
Gay. No stranger to Simmons, Mr. Bosworth was 
a popular member of the English School faculty 
before he entered the service. 

The English School program combines liberal 
and technical courses. Copy-writing, Layout, and 
Display; Editing, Publishing Techniques, and 
Design; Form, Style, and Usage give English 
School majors a knowledge of proofreading, news- 
writing, advertising, preparation of copy, and the 
methods of elementary research. 



• Relaxation is a fine art 



English Club ojfiicers: Gorfinkel, Shribman, Dittmer 




know what's the good word 



Aspiring writers are reintroduced to capitaliza- 
tion, punctuation, and hyphenation. They be- 
come acquainted with gutters, cuts, and captions. 
They study methods of printing, type design, and 
paper surfaces. "What's the slug'"' is often on the 
tongues of these students who avoid the word 
"journalism" like hardened newsmen. 

Girls practice what has been preached in their 
technical courses by editing Fen Ways, the college 
magazine. Positions as MIC and Mews editors also 
give English School students experience needed 
for their future professions. 

This year an English School laboratory, long 
one of Dr. Gay's desires, became a reality. It was 
equipped as a gift to Dr. Gay from English School 
alumnae and students. The lab, named in honor 
of the former director, is being used for all English 
School projects, including Fen Ways. 

Members of the English Club, which is open to 
the entire student body, discuss things literary, 
from Shakespeare to books banned in Boston. This 
year officers included: President, Alison Dittmer; 
Vice-President, Evelyn Gorfinkel; Secretary, Pris- 
cilla Wheelock; Treasurer, Helen Shribman; Pub- 
licity, Jean Bratton.

Mr. Harrison L. Harley 
Director of the School of Preprofessional Studies 



Prepro girls and social 



Girls who want to become doctors or lawyers 
do undergraduate work in the School of Prepro- 
fessional Studies. However, the girls planning to 
enter medical and law schools are outnumbered by 
those studying to be social workers, librarians, or 
retailers. 

The School of Preprofessional Studies expects 
graduate work of its students. Therefore, the goal 
of the graduate professional school is always kept 
in mind. With the aid of the director, Mr. Harrison 
L. Harley, students choose courses which furnish a 
broad cultural background in literature, history, 
economics, science, and psychology. These courses 
help students prepare for professional studies. 

Four programs which lead to library service, 
social work, retailing, and medical science are 
offered. Those students planning to be librarians 
concentrate in English, languages, and history. 
Girls headed into social work emphasize psychol- 
ogy, economics, and sociology. Those who have 
retailing as a goal major in economics, clothing, 
and design. Prospective doctors and lawyers? 
They major, too. Indian chiefs? Haven't seen one 
yet, but wonders never cease at Simmons.

Going up, Tony? 




workers serve society 



Social work itself is as old as the human heart. 
As a profession, however, it is new. Even now it is 
difficult to convince the horse-and-buggy mind that 
it takes a trained person to handle human problems. 

The most sympathetic person is unable to give 
a man with a broken leg the right help if the leg 
is to mend properly. The injured man must have a 
doctor, a person trained to set broken legs. So it is 
with broken or disjointed lives. A trained person 
must put the pieces together. 

The Simmons College School of Social Work 
offers such training. The school has developed a 
two-year graduate program leading to the degree 
of Master of Science. During the first year students 
take basic courses, among them Principles of 
Human Behavior and Clinical Psychiatry. They 
begin field work in and near Boston. Second-year 
students do advanced work in medical and psy- 
chiatric social work, public welfare, and social 
research. 

Picking up the pieces after any war is difficult. 
This time it will be even more complicated than 
before. The girl getting her M.S. in Social Work 
has important work to do.

of the U.S.S. Simmons, a \^bt^y^sfaj|^e;iamed in 
honor of the college. ^-^V/ 

To the battlefields, students sent brmdages and 
blood plasma. Under Y.W.C.A. supervisioifpRimble 
fingers transformed wispy pieces of gauze into use^ 
ful bandages. Faculty and student groups regu- 
larly played the leading roles on "Simmons Night" 
at the Blood Donor Center. 

And to the Treasury Department, Simmons sent 
money from the sale of war bonds and stamps. 
The girls of the "Simmons Follies of 1945," an 
all-college variety show, displayed their hidden 
talents for a purpose. Proceeds went to the United 
War Fund Drive. 

When war headlines disappeared, Simmons 
organizations turned to back up the peace. The 
War Service Committee was swiftly reconverted to 
the committee in charge of the World Student 
Service Fund. Every club cooperated to raise 
money and supplies for students and refugees in 
war-battered Europe. 

War bonds became victory bonds — and students 
kept on buying them. 

Anglo-American relations, China's future, 
new France, our Russian allies — noted speakers 
presented these vital issues at assemblies arranged 
by the Social Activities Committee. Student Gov- 
ernment joined with other colleges to urge action 
on the atomic bomb issue. 

Inter-Club Council brought harmony and coop- 
eration among the school organizations. Simmons 
clubs as well as the nations of the world learned the 
strength that lies in united action — in war and 
peace.

Student Government Council 



At Simmons education not only comprises art, 
science, and industry, but citizenship as well. 
Every undergraduate is a member of the Student 
Government Association, popularly called Stu-G. 

Student Government means just what the name 
implies. The students at Simmons largely govern 
themselves. Simmons is one of the few major col- 
leges which has such a system. 

The highest office a student can hold in college 
is Student Government President. This year Presi- 
dent Margaret Wilson and Stu-G Council worked 
to give fuller meaning to the aims of the Associa- 
tion, "to supervise the policies and finances of the 
various student organizations, to formulate and 
enforce rules for student conduct, to further the 
general interests of the student body, and to work 
closely with the Administration on matters con- 
cerning the interests of the student body." 

Some might assume that the organization of 
Stu-G would have to be complex to carry out its 
duties. Actually its make-up is simple and efficient. 




Dormitory Council, headeo^^fcMargaret West, 
advanced student welfare in th^^Ans. The pur- 
pose ol Honor Board, directed by^^^ha Brooks, 
was to maintain the conduct of stude^^^quired 
under the Honor System. The special 2^P^£.the 
energetic Social Activities Committee, 
Martha Reilly, was the participation of comr 
and dorm students in all college affairs. Barba? 
Giles and her Lunchroom Committee stressed the 
fact that all must wait their turn in line for cafeteria 
cookery. The War Service Committee, headed by 
Frances Hanifan, which sold more than three 
thousand dollars worth of War Bonds, was honor- 
ably discharged December 7. It then assumed the 
work of the Students' Service Committee in charge 
of the drive for the World Student Service Fund. 

Each class elects two representatives to the 
Council. Students keep in touch with their govern- 
ment through these representatives, the Stu-G 
Bulletin Board, the "Beef Box," and open meetings 
of the Council.

of the students, 

Amendments were added to the Constitution of 
Student Government this year. As of November I, 
1945, every new club functions as a temporary 
organization until the end of a four-month period. 
If the activities of the club indicate its worthwhile 
contribution to student life, the Council will ap- 
prove its continuance as a permanent club. 

The Council also established the requirement of 
a majority vote for the winner of all class and 
organization offices. To insure this majority, only 
two candidates will run for office on the final ballot. 

Student Government voted to dispense with the 
Curriculum Committee this year. The purpose of 
the committee was to conduct a poll of student 
opinions on courses taken during the year and to 
give students a chance to make suggestions regard- 
ing the curriculum. The poll was made by means 



of a questionnaire distributed with News. Since the 
majority of students and faculty felt the reports 
were not a fair indication of student opinions, the 
committee was abolished. Directors of the various 
schools have followed the Council suggestion that 
each school organize its own curriculum committee, 
as a more efficient way to solve student problems 
about courses. 

Two representatives from Mount Holyoke, 
Radcliffe, Regis, Wheaton, Jackson, Wheelock, 
Sargent, Wellesley, and Simmons met at Evans 
Hall in December to compare the policies of stu- 
dent government organizations in their colleges. 
This conference, the first of its kind held by Sim- 
mons, revealed the great freedom given to Simmons 
students. 



• Dormitory Council 




Early in January Stu-G approved plans for an 
All-College Weekend first suggested in a letter 
to the editor of News. A cafeteria supper at college 
opened the big week-end on Friday, April 26. 

The library and butt room received special 
Council attention this year. Emphasis was put 
on the necessity for a quiet library. Since the 
college library is the only place in the building 
where conditions permit concentrated study, si- 
lence is essential. 

Rules for the use of the butt room were ap- 
proved by the Council in the fall. Attention was 
called to the careless disposal of cigarettes and the 
general untidiness. Student Government repeatedly 
stressed the necessity of keeping that hazy haunt 
in a condition worthy of its popularity. 

All-College Field Day was held again this year 
under the sponsorship of Student Government. 
On this day school spirit reached a peak. Faculty 
and students rivaled each other at the baseball 
game in the back yard. Faculty-student teas in 
November and March helped to further the 
friendly relations evident on Field Day.

Student Government sponsored the Bib Party 
for Freshmen and their Junior sisters. At Olde 
English Dinner, the President and Vice-President 
of Student Government presided as Lord and Lady 
of the Manor. The popular series of lectures on 
marriage, given last winter, was also sponsored 
by Student Government. 

In March the final candidates for next year's 
president of Student Government spoke at a Stu- 
dent Government rally. Suspense comparable to 
that of a radio mystery thriller pervaded the at- 
mosphere at Stu-G May Party. No wonder, for 
on that day results of the college elections were 
announced. 

Simmons students, although accustomed to liv- 
ing under written constitutions, have never taken 
Student Government for granted. Through Stu- 
dent Government they have attained and main- 
tained good order at Simmons. They have proved 
themselves worthy of the authority bestowed on 
them by a trusting faculty. As good citizens of 
Simmons, they have learned to become good cit- 
izens of the world.

Who's Who . . . 




League of leaders 



Inter-Club Council, now in its second year, has 
ably filled the need for an integrating mechanism 
for clubs and organizations at Simmons. This year 
the Council, through the conscientious work and 
enthusiasm of its members, ripened into a full- 
grown, successful organization. 

ICC, as it is called, began in May, 1945, to or- 
ganize this year's program. Members of the Coun- 
cil, which is made up of club presidents and organ- 
ization heads, discussed their particular problems 
and gained a better understanding of other organ- 
izations at Simmons. 

To bring this understanding to the student 
body, ICC presented an assembly in October, en- 
titled "The Gremlin Presents." Each club and 
organization prepared a skit on its activities, which 
helped Freshmen and upperclassmen in choosing 



which clubs to join. This was the first in a series 
of strides taken under the leadership of President 
Marilyn Jackson, Secretary Olive Bridge, and 
Treasurer Stella McDonough to unify and strengthen 
club relations at Simmons. 

ICC sponsored the supper held in the Cafeteria 
the Friday of All-College Weekend. They also 
were in charge of the club exhibits displayed in 
Student Officers Room on Visitors' Day. 

Inter-Club Council has proved its value and 
worth to Simmons students. Duplication of effort 
has been avoided. Members of school clubs, which 
tend to segregate students by professional interests, 
have been made aware of the existence and activi- 
ties of other clubs. Inter-Club Council through its 
joint meetings, inter-professional programs, and 
cooperative activities has done remarkable work.

in Clubs and Classes 



Wearers of the gold and blue Academy ribbons 
are members of Simmons most select club. Only 
girls who achieve a better than B average in all 
their courses for a two-year period are eligible for 
membership in Academy. This year Academy 
members sported gold keys similar to those of Phi 
Beta Kappa. 

New members were admitted to the circle of 
Simmons intellectuals at a formal reception in 
Evans Hall in the fall. Thus a college dream came 
true for a deserving few. 

Mr. John Greene of the FBI spoke at the October 
tea. In December members enjoyed a joint meeting 
with Glee Club, Dramatic Club, and Orchestra. 
The club's annual theatre party in February 
provided a good time for the members who saw 
the musical comedy, Three to Make Ready. 

Officers were: President, Priscilla Dockler; 
Secretary, Doris Lamb; Treasurer, Catherine 
Yannoni.

A year 



Microcosm is forty years old, but an annual 
"face-lifting" keeps it looking young. The 1946 
Mic was planned to combine reference value and 
entertainment. 

Last May the war's effect on Simmons was 
decided on as the yearbook theme. Victory in sum- 
mer meant Mic could provide a valuable war 
record. For the first time in years a four-color pic- 
ture and complete undergraduate lists appeared. 
A Beautiful Hands Contest was announced to over 
three hundred couples at the Mic formal in the 
Copley. Simmons voted Margaret Wood as the 
Senior with the most beautiful hands, and Boston 
papers featured the story.

During summer vacation Selma Brick and Mimi

Pictures were food to Elsie P. Littlefield, while 
Lois Kovner and Ann Michelson toiled for the sake 
of the Seniors. And the money came rolling in to 
Doris Drescher with the help of Elinor King's 
"ad" receipts. Meg Dawson counted copy. 

Surprise rewards for "gallant service" came at 
the April Mic banquet when keys were awarded 
to each member of the editorial board.

Fen Ways is the product of busy brains and sleep- 
less nights. The student body contributes material 
to the magazine. English School Seniors do the 
planning and processing of two issues, while 
Juniors take over the last issue. The girls are 
elected to positions on the business and editorial 
staffs. Every girl in the English School works at 
least once on Fen Ways. 

An all-college contest to discover the Simmons 
Cover Girl was sponsored by Priscilla Hanna and 
her staff of Juniors for the May 1945 issue. 

Excerpts from Dr. Kenneth Mark's new history 
of the college were featured in the November 1 945

"Extra/ Extra/" never rings at Simmons because 
by instinct every Sally knows when the Simmons 
News hits Info. News, which comes out each 
Thursday, vacations excepted, is a student project. 
Richmond K. Bachelder and Mrs. Pearl S. Young 
are always on hand to give helpful advice, but they 
rarely use a blue pencil. 

Students form the paper's policies, do the news- 
writing, editing, and make-up. Reporters scoop 
each other in offices and classrooms, in dorms and 
subways, in the Butt Room and on the back steps.

make the News 

This year News attempted in its editorial policy 
to get students to think about vital issues and how 
these issues concerned them as students and as 
members of society. News supported the Victory 
Loan and the Red Cross Drive. It campaigned for 
the Honor System, a quieter library. Its columns 
served as a medium of expression for the Corpora- 
tion, faculty, and students. 

News won First Class Honor Rating in the All- 
American Newspaper Critical Poll of the Asso- 
ciated Collegiate Press. Issues of News from Feb- 
ruary to June, 1945, published by Evelyn David- 
off's staff, were judged on the basis of style, content, 
typography, and layout. 

A poll of over two hundred students showed 
Profiles were the most popular and most thoroughly 
read feature. Beyond the Fens, Straight from Stu- 
G, and Time Out also ranked high. 

News changes staffs in the middle of the school 
year. In this way the newly elected members have 
an opportunity to benefit from the experience of 
the former staff. At a February banquet the new 
staff was announced by retiring Editor-in-Chief 
Evelyn Davidoff. Fay Sheinfein, headed the staff 
which took over the paper on March 7. 

This board was the first to work under the new 
organization of News staff. Under the revised 
system, the managing editor and her associates 
assumed work formerly done by the feature, news, 
and social news editors. Other changes included 
the creation of an editorial panel and the expansion 
of the duties of technical editor and business man- 
ager. The new organization was felt to provide a 
more centralized, better coordinated staff.

Christian Science officers: Harrington, Knight, Ebersole • Hillel officers: Lipson, King, Stampler, Rudik. Gordon 



Religious clubs promote 



The Christian Science organization this year 
successfully combined the social and religious 
sides of its activities. Its members heard lectures 
and attended the Wednesday evening meetings at 
the Mother Church, First Church of Christ Sci- 
entist, in Boston. At the weekly testimonial meet- 
ings selections from the Bible and Science and Health 
with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy were 
given by the club reader. 

In December the Simmons club entertained 
members of Christian Science groups from B. U., 
M.I.T., Harvard, Wellesley, and Radcliffe. Mr. 
John Randall Dunn, editor of Christian Science 
periodicals, spoke at this meeting. In February 
Mr. Paul Cormack gave a lively talk about his 
work as cartoonist for the Christian Science Alonitor. 

The annual lecture sponsored by the Mother 
Church, was held in April. An invitation to this 
meeting was extended to members of other faiths. 

Officers of the organization were: Chairman, 
Nancy Harrington; Secretary-Treasurer, Mary 
Ebersole; Reader, Marcia Knight. Mrs. Jean 
Young Gavin was Faculty Advisor. 



The Hillel Foundation, which has been at Sim- 
mons only two years, is geared to meet the needs 
and interests of Jewish students. Through Hillel, 
girls gain a deep understanding of the values and 
traditions of their religion and culture. 

Speakers, including author-lecturer Waldo 
Frank, discussed contemporary Jewish issues at 
monthly meetings held under the direction of Rab- 
bi Leonard Greenberg. Emphasis was placed on 
the future of Jewish youdi in Europe and America. 

Members enjoyed frequent round table debates 
on contraversial issues. Some joined study groups 
to learn Hebrew and American Jewish history. 

Simmons joined with local chapters at Harvard, 
Radcliffe, Tufts, and M.I.T. for dances, discus- 
sions, and Sunday musicales at the Copley Square 
Lounge. Simmons sponsored an intercollegiate 
spring dance at the Hotel Sheraton. 

Officers were: President, Ruth Rudik; Vice- 
President, Phyllis Gordon; Secretary, Estelle Lip- 
son; Treasurer, Muriel King; Social Activities 
Chairman, Constance Stampler.

Inter- Varsity Christian Fellowship, usually re- 
ferred to by its initials IVCF, is a national organ- 
ization of students who wish to study the Bible and 
its applications to daily living. The Simmons 
chapter was formed when the Unity League and 
the League of Evangelical Students merged. 

The club, which has been functioning only a few 
years, is interdenominational. Members conduct 
monthly meetings in the Lounge to hear in- 
formative talks on the Bible which are followed by 
discussion. 

The girls do not neglect social activities. Joint 
meetings were often held with local chapters at 
Harvard, M.I.T., B.U., Tufts, Radcliffe, Wellesley, 
and Jackson. Outings were sponsored in the fall 
and the spring. A picnic highlighted the spring 
season. IVCF also directed a successful clothing 
drive on behalf of Europe's needy people. 

This year the club was led by Leah Stetson as 
President, Alma Johnson as Secretary-Treasurer, 
and Ruth Francis as Publicity Chairman. 



The founding of a Newman Club Federation 
Center in Boston gave impetus to Simmons New- 
man Club activities this year. Lectures were con- 
ducted at the Center for Newman members from 
near-by colleges. Weekly dances held at the Center 
helped Boston Newmanites to get better acquainted. 
In April the Federation sponsored a weekend 
which included a dinner, a formal, a tea dance, 
and a Communion Breakfast. 

Newman Club meetings centered around lec- 
tures given by guest speakers and informal talks by 
the Club Chaplain, the Reverend Joseph Quinn. 
At these meetings students received religious guid- 
ance and a clearer insight into Catholicism. 

A skating party for members of the M.I.T. and 
Simmons clubs was held at the Boston Skating 
Club in December. The year's activities culminated 
with a Mother-Daughter Communion Breakfast. 

Club officers were: President, Elicia Carroll; 
Vice-President, Jacqueline Bates; Secretary, Mar- 
garet Sheehy; Treasurer, Stella McDonough.

strike a gay note 

Many an overworked Sally who has stayed at 
school until late Monday afternoon has heard the 
pear-shaped tones which emanate from the As- 
sembly Hall. Every Monday the gifted members 
of the Glee Club stretched their dainty mouths 
into resonant O's to practice songs, under the 
direction of Mr. Lyle K. Ring. 

The Glee Club accent is not strictly on the 
musical note. Many of its activities combine vocal 
and social enjoyment. Highly successful joint con- 
certs were given with Tufts, B.U., M.I.T., and the 
Massachusetts School of Art. The club sang the 
traditional Christmas Vespers at St. Paul's Epis- 
copal Church in Brookline. 

Sixteen picked voices from the Glee Club make 
up the featured A Capella Choir. These girls sing 
intricate pieces, often without accompaniment. 

This year, officers were: President, Janice Ames; 
Business Manager, Priscilla Dockler; Concert 
Manager, June Radebaugh; Secretary, Virginia 
Congdon; Treasurer, Jean Merriam; Librarians, 
Rosamond Cole and Helen Hermes. 



The Simmonsaires have come into their own. 
No more squeaky violin strings and off-tune 
trumpets. After just three short years Simmons has 
an orchestra to be proud of. 

Led by Mr. Gordon Joslin, Director of Music 
at Brookline High School, the twenty-four members 
of the orchestra put in many grueling hours of 
practice. 

More and more the Simmonsaires are taking 
their place in the college social whirl. They now 
play for such major events as Competitives, Olde 
English Dinner, Nursing School Capping Exer- 
cises, and the President's Reception. 

The Annual Spring Concert presented with the 
Glee Club and the Bluettes really gave the orches- 
tra a chance to "show its stuff." They ran the 
gamut of their repertoire from highly classical 
pieces to popular swing numbers. 

Officers were: President, Adelaide DelFrate; 
Vice-President, Barbara Johnson; Secretary, Marie 
Ochs; Treasurer, Anne Lawton; Librarian, Betty 
Grant.

Artistic girls paint the masks 




Along about November when the voices of 
Simmons girls went down two octaves, everyone 
knew it was time for Dramatic Club tryouts and 
Competitives. A voice a la Lauren Bacall was 
almost a sure sign of an aspiring actress. 

Competitives gave the Freshmen, Sophomores, 
and Juniors a chance to try their acting ability. 
The Seniors, after three fruitful years on stage, 
stepped behind the scenes to make up the actresses 
and direct the plays. The Junior play, Lost Victory, 
which was directed by Betty Silverman, won the 
silver cup. 

Simmons really gets into the Christmas spirit 
the Friday before vacation when the Christmas 
Pageant is given. This year the pageant was pre- 
sented in three tableaux: the Advent, Herod and 
the Wise Men, and the Nativity. Janice Dunlop 
played the part of the Madonna. The orchestra 
played Hebrew background music, and A Capella 
Choir sang Christmas Carols. The Choral Speaking 
Group, under the direction of Mrs. Miller, gave 
selections from the Bible.

of comedy and tragedy 

For the first time active members of Dramatic 
Club who had acquired fifteen or more points 
under its special credit system were awarded keys. 
These keys were presented at a dinner in the spring. 

The busy officers of this club were: President, 
Barbara Gates; Vice-President, Betty Silverman; 
Secretary, Edythe Ehlers; Treasurer, Norma Ber- 
man; Tea Chairman, Nancy Atherton; and Pub- 
licity Chairman, Dolores Rada. 

The professional air of the placards in the school 
corridors was achieved by the talented members of 
the Poster Committee. What those gals managed to 
accomplish with cardboard, a little paint, and some 
glue was the answer to a frustrated publicity chair- 
man's prayer. 

Artistry and talent combined with frugality 
were the watchwords of this committee. Each girl 
received a dollar for the poster she created. Under 
the ever watchful eye of the chairman of the Com- 
mittee, Patricia Washer, each piece was carefully 
checked for excellence before gracing Poster Row 
or other school corridors.

For an intimate knowledge of the ''South Ameri- 
can Way," Simmons girls consult members of the 
Pan-American Club. These students can also give 
demonstration classes in the fascinating subjects 
of Conga, Samba, and Rumba. 

Informality and inter-American understanding 
are club keynotes. Olga Ramirez, Vice-President, 
gave a series of talks on interesting Latin-American 
customs. At several club meetings members en- 
joyed colored films showing the vibrant nature of 
South American scenery. Senor Jose Encinas told 
the girls about his native Peru. 

Members of the club became cosmopolitan as 
they attended dinners, dances, and receptions 
sponsored by the International Student Association 
of Boston, the Latin-American House, and the 
Cosmopolitan Club. In December the Simmons 
group held its first evening meeting and enter- 
tained Latin-American students from M.I.T. and 
Harvard. 



President Elizabeth Phelan acted as general 
director of the club's activities. She was aided by 
Publicity Chairman Elizabeth Donnelly. Secretary- 
Treasurer Ruth Rados kept close watch over the 
club's purse strings with one hand and scribbled 
meeting notes with the other. Norma Ricci and 
Marion Jenkins collaborated to bring spicy Span- 
ish-American flavor to the refreshments.

The grim results of war were brought home to 
several members of Le Gercle Francais this year. 
Thirteen girls in the club "adopted" French war 
orphans. The adoption of these children entailed 
the monthly sending of two packages of food and 
one of clothing to each child. Every three months 
the girls sent a complete report to the New York 
headquarters of France Forever. The foster "god- 
parents," as the American students were called, 



also corresponded with the little French children. 
Some of the letters were read at the club meetings. 

The club, made up of girls interested in French 
art, literature, and history, kept in close touch with 
troubled post-war France through its affiliations 
with France Forever and American Relief for 
France. 

There was also a lighter, gayer side to the club 
activities. In November the Harvard and Rad- 
cliffe French clubs invited members of the Sim- 
mons group to an informal program of music. 
At another meeting the members listened with 
obvious enjoyment to the latest French fashion 
news given by a Boston buyer. 

The officers of Le Cercle Francais for the year 
were: President, Mary Kerr; Vice-President, Dor- 
othy Allison; Secretary, Annette Abrams; Treas- 
urer, Claire Keefe; and Tea Chairman, Ann 
Merrill.

A helping hand 

YWCA is one of the most active clubs at Sim- 
mons because of its diversified interests in college 
and community. This year started off with a Wel- 
come Party for Freshmen. 

The club conducted two meetings designed to 
promote better understanding and co-operation of 
different religious groups. Mr. Judah Shapiro of 
the Hillel Foundation spoke on the history, doc- 
trines, and current views of Judaism. Father 
Leonard Feeney, noted Jesuit writer and poet, 
lectured on Catholicism. 

Late in October a Splash and Bowling Party was 
held at the T on Clarendon Street. Girls who 
worked up appetites swimming and bowling had 
supper in the Chatterbox. 

In February Peter Reckard, a graduate student 
at Yale, told of his experiences with European 
students during the war. He stressed the problems 
facing foreign students today. Mr. Reckard urged 
American students to co-operate in helping the 
World Student Service Fund re-establish European 
universities. 

The leaders of YWCA for the year were: Presi- 
dent, Caryl Key; Vice-President, Teresa LaCroix; 
Secretary, Mary Clark; and Treasurer, Nancy 
Worth. 



Dolls, Teddy bears, and clowns to cheer war-stricken children 




[70] 



and a wanderlust spirit 



If you should see a Simmons girl climbing up 
the face of a cliff, you would probably be right in 
assuming she's an Outing Club member. The 
Simmons Outing Club went all out for rock 
climbing this year along with other strenuous out- 
door activities. Members went hiking and cycling 
in the Blue Hills, canoeing on the Charles, and 
skiing in the White Mountains. 

When "Swing your partners" rang across the 
floor at Harvard Memorial Hall on Saturday 
nights, many Simmons girls answered the call. 
Some claim these square dances are the back- 
bone of the Boston Outing Clubs which include 
Tech, Harvard, Radcliffe, Tufts, and Jackson. The 
square dances are sponsored by the Intercollegiate 
Outing Club Association. Girls wear cotton 
dresses. Fellows appear in bright plaid shirts and 
dungarees. As they "dosie doe" around the floor, 
the scene resembles an old-time barn dance. 

In the fall the Simmons Outing Club was hostess 
to local colleges at a series of dances held in the 
college cafeteria. Hot dogs and coke provided the 
energy and initiative needed for full enjoyment of 
the rollicking square dances. 



As the time drew near for the Intercollegiate 
Outing Club Association's national conferences and 
meetings, members of the Outing Club eagerly- 
awaited the choice of the lucky representatives 
to these affairs. The conference was held in April 
on the Smith College campus and the Annual 
College Week took place in the Adirondacks. 
These affairs are the "swap shop" of ideas for all 
the outing clubs in the country. They also provide 
a wonderful time for those who attend. 

The weekend is the time the Simmons Outing 
Clubber really comes into her own — with skiing 
and cycling trips to New Hampshire and Vermont. 
The girls also take trips to the Tufts cabin and 
the ever popular Tech cabin, where after a fun- 
packed, strenuous day, tired members can sit 
around a roaring fire, toast marshmallows, and 
sing gay songs. 

The Outing Club elects officers for a term lasting 
from February to February. Officers for the first 
half-year were: President, Dorothy Weinz; Trips 
Director, Muriel Duffy; Secretary-Treasurer, Bar- 
bara Wiley. Mrs. Josephine M. Chapman is Fac- 
ulty Advisor of the club.

The United States Student Assembly sponsored 
several assemblies to clarify student thinking on 
world events. At meetings members entered open 
discussions on current problems of labor and man- 
agement, racial and religious issues, and interna- 
tional organization. 



On December 7, Dr. Philippe Le Corbeiller, 
Harvard physicist, spoke on the social implications 
of the atomic bomb. USSA sent a telegram to 
James Byrnes, Secretary of State, recommending 
that the bomb be internationalized under the 
United Nations Organization. In February USSA

Students heard a personal report on the Russians 
by S/Sgt. Leonard Bernhardt on January 1 1 . Cap- 
tured by the Nazis, he was liberated by the Rus- 
sians and fought beside them on the battlefield. 
Sgt. Bernhardt endeavored, by telling of his war- 
time experiences with the Russians, to dispel any 
distrust of these people. He spoke on Russian Army 
life, and Russian education, customs, and religion. 

At one club meeting members discussed the 
dissension between Jews and Arabs in Palestine and 
the solutions various nations offer for this problem. 
Mr. Waldo Palmer was mediator. 

Officers of USSA were: President, Joyce Blume; 
Vice-President, Fay Sheinfein; Secretary, Arlene 
Ross; Treasurer, Olympia Davis; Publicity Chair- 
man, Priscilla Wheelock.

Naval Dispensary lifted the morale of commuters 
hurrying to early classes. In recognition of stu- 
dents' more active social life, the Bookstore issued 
the first edition of the Simmons College Engage- 
ment Calendar. A poll of Simmons graduates re- 
vealed the news that seven out of ten graduates

The Junior class play won the silver cup at 
Competitives. The Sophomore competitive cast 
presented its play to wounded veterans at Lovell 
General Hospital in December. 

Dorm Sophomores voted unanimously to give 
their seats at Olde English Dinner to Senior com- 
muters. This action in a small way exemplified the 
unselfishness and understanding essential in world 
relations. 





He's wonderful 
The last autograph 
Pause for refreshments 
Tryon at it again 



Freshmen . . . our first post-war babies 



College at last! The class of 1949 descended on 
Simmons in mid-September. Orientation week 
was brightened by new friends, yet shadowed by 
placement tests. Freshmen were "in the swing" 
by the end of the first week of classes. Soon they 
had adopted the college lingo. In the fall they were 
presented to the faculty at a reception in honor of 
their class. 

"Sign mine, sign mine," Freshmen pleaded at 
Bib Party, besieging faculty members and Juniors 
for autographs. At the party Junior sisters played 
nursemaids to Freshmen who capered around the 
cafeteria wearing paper bibs. Freshmen, after 
that friendly fracas, no longer stood in awe of their 
sister class. 

Tables were turned when Sophomores begged 
Freshmen to be their valentines at a party Feb- 
ruary 12. Although Sophomores were not "the 
real thing," they served the purpose. 

A few months later Freshmen again took the 
initiative, this time seeking escorts for their class 
formal. After the ball, the Freshmen, not immune 
to spring fever, found it difficult to concentrate on 
studies. Soon final exams were at hand, but the 
cloud passed, and with it, Freshman year.

There are smiles 
What a line! 
Virginia reels 
Now the question is . 



Sophomores. . . shine at Shuffle, Shindig 



Second year students at college are hailed as 
simple Sophs, silly Sophs, sophisticated Sophs, 
even sophomoric Sophs, but not at Simmons. None 
of these adjectives is a fit modifier for the Simmons 
student who survived Freshman year and eagerly 
returned a Soph for more. 

Hallowe'ening Sophs dressed in dungarees and 
long-tailed shirts to celebrate at the Shindig, 
October 30. Soph swung Soph in square dances 
and Virginia reels, quenching thirst and hunger 
with punch and doughnuts. 

Early in the second semester, the Sophomores 
entertained Freshman valentines at a party in 
the Cafeteria. The Soph Shuffle occasioned much 
gaiety. Frisky the Colt was the center of attention 
as girls and their escorts danced to the lively tunes 
of Guy Ormandy. 

At six o'clock one morning in May, the Sopho- 
mores awoke the Seniors from dreams to partake 
in the traditional May Breakfast. Using a silver 
spade, the King-President of the Sophomore class 
planted the class tree. Sophomore dancers twirled 
streamers around the Maypole during ceremonies 
on the Brookline Avenue campus. For breakfast 
everyone enjoyed luscious strawberry shortcake. 

The highlight of the year came in the spring, 
when Sophomores proudly slipped on their college 
rings.

Juniors . . • enjoy peacetime jamboree 




Class officers: Sobocinski, Speirs, Conklin, Clark 



r 



Tabu S. Kunk, mascot of the class of 1947, 
extended odiferous greetings to the Freshmen 
during Orientation week. On his best behavior 
as host of the Junior Welcome Committee, he 
introduced the newest Simmons students to the 
college of their choice. 

The Juniors carried out a nursery theme of 
decorations at the Bib Party given in October. 
Playing celebrities, as well as nursemaids, they 
dashed off signatures for Freshmen in a contest for 
the most autographed bib. 

The Freshman-Junior Jamboree continued an 
event inaugurated the year before. Dressed in 
unique, colorful costumes, Juniors and Freshmen 
had another "whale of a time" together. 

Problems encountered making plans for Junior 
Prom faded the night of April 6, at the dinner 
dance held in the Copley-Plaza. Glamorous gowns 
were a drastic change from the customary skirts 
and sweaters. The long-awaited night was a 
memory too soon. 

In June, classmates fought off bugs and bees 
to gather daisies for Daisy Chain. After the Garden 
Party on Class Day, they stepped into the places 
the Senior class relinquished to them on the Colon- 
nade steps. In a few months the Juniors themselves 
would be Seniors.

Seniors. ..first post-war graduates 




Class officers: Bunker, Jackson, Dyer 



Seniors began their final year at Simmons 
wearing the black caps and gowns of their office. 
Unaccustomed to their new roles, they were glad 
to shake their dignified garb a week later for 
sweaters and skirts. Though older and surer, they 
were hard to distinguish even from the Freshmen. 

Ghosts, goblins, and haunts invaded Evans Hall 
at the Hallowe'en Hobo Party. Descending to 
Hobo Tavern, in the depths of the game room, 
they bobbed for apples, ate doughnuts and cider, 
and were entertained by talented tramps. 

The Ides of March, 1946, was a never-to-be- 
forgotten occasion. The first Senior Prom in four 
years, a supper dance, was held in the Hotel 
Continental. 

The Senior-Faculty Supper took place in April 
soon after the girls returned from practice work 
in the business world. At May Breakfast on the 
Brookline Avenue campus, the Senior class presi- 
dent was crowned Queen of the May. 

Seniors planted ivy on Class Day and gave up 
their places on the Colonnade to the Juniors. 
A solemn Baccalaureate preceded Commencement 
exercises. Soon the Seniors were Seniors no longer. 
They had assumed new roles as Bachelors of Sci- 
ence, Alumnae of Simmons College.

* More than a thousand year books have borne the 
imprint of New England's Master Craftsmen. 

Many business managers and editors of year books 
in the school and college field have written us in 
appreciation of our cooperation and helpful sug- 
gestions. This, of course, has been very gratifying 
to us and we are looking forward to the years 
ahead with the same spirit of helpfulness to the 
business managers and editors of the future.

For nearly a century and a half The 
Andover Press has been a leader in

ation built up over this long period. 

We are proud to add this volume of 
the MICROCOSM to the select 
list of books bearing The Insigne of 
Quality Printing.
